Because of the increasing number of Covid-cases in India and the lockdown imposed by the government, Planet Hope has stopped it’s education programs on location. Nevertheless the various vocational courses continue largely online.
The women who follow the course tailoring and entrepreneurship for example, could take their sowing machines home. Here, they follow online courses and sewing instruction videos from the teacher. Just like at the beginning of the Covid crisis, the children of the daycare daily receive video lessons through Whatsapp.
During the lockdown our team, in collaboration with other NGO’s, voluntarily joins the Covid relief program coordinated by the government. They support the 24/7 helpline and help families who lost their loved ones, amongst other things with the burials.
